Re: Software to remove possible malware?

Quite unnecessary, and even downright bad for your security. You might find this article interesting, that I've written about security in Linux Mint: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/security.html What about ClamTK ? Is that ok ? I've been using it for stuff i download. Why is it in the ...

Re: Software to remove possible malware?

Does Zoom work & safe to use on Mint 20.1

My church is using Zoom for discussions and wants people to participate on the platform. I went to Zoom download website and it says Linux Mint 17.1+ (It's unclear what the + means in the download). Does the Web App sandbox web browser sites ? And can Zoom be ran through the Web if it does sandbox t...

Re: Firefox: Broken window title bar

Hopefully i don't experience that problem. I see on your reddit post that a Windows user is having the same problem so it must be a Firefox issue.

Re: Warpinator hidden files

I had something weird happen today with Warpinator as well. I removed the program from Mint 20 yesterday (because i would never use it) but for some reason a empty Warpinator folder appeared in the home directory when i stuck flash drive into my computer.

Re: Game save folders on Steam ?

Ok. It's still confusing because the game save folder is empty but i know i have game saves in the folder. I even hit "show hidden files" and the folder is empty. That's something i don't understand or am comfortable with putting anything in there. I whole heartedly believe it's a trusted ...

Re: Game save folders on Steam ?

Yeah, that's what i don't understand. Every place i read said to go here ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/. But i only know how to go here /.steam/steam/steamapps/

I do know not to put it in root. But i don't understand why they call this ~ home ?

Re: Game save folders on Steam ?

From what i have read it should not make any difference. Like disk games sometimes you have to install a patch or a save file manually - like in the Wine folder or a Windows folder. Like in Wine or Windows it would be the Program Files (x86) folder. Only in this case it would be the Program Files (x...

Re: hypnotix - dependency error

Oooops....I misunderstood his directions. I just installed what he sent and not Hypnotix. I just installed Hypnotix and have it in the Menu now. Helps to actually install it, :lol:
